Magoha Warns Ruto Of The Main Issue Facing Education, Before He Officially Leaves The Office

George Magoha, the departing cabinet secretary for education, has submitted a request to President William Ruto that is most likely the last one he will make in that post.

When a new cabinet assumes leadership to serve the country on Tuesday of next week, Magoha will no longer serve in the same manner. The departing Cabinet Secretary will be succeeded by Machogu, a former provincial official and MP for Nyaribari Masaba.

This changeover to the new administration coincides with the country's transition away from the antiquated 8-4-4 Competency Based Curriculum system, which is still rife with problems.

Magoha, who has worked in the field of education for almost 6 years, asked the president to address the teacher shortage that is likely to affect the transition while he was giving free advice to his successor Machogu on some of the details he should observe while holding the position.

The departing Cabinet Secretary didn't think twice to remind the current administration that they had pledged in their manifesto to hire about 56,000 teachers.

According to him, the Kenya Kwanza Coalition's manifesto called for hiring 56,000 additional teachers to close the current teacher-to-student ratio gap.

The severe teacher shortage problem, which is exacerbated as we approach transit edition, is the real crisis facing schools, according to Magoha.
